Leave My Tomatoes Alone, Please

I'm tired of finding tomatoes that look like this:

Honestly, the squirrels have eaten more of my tomatoes this year than I have.
So this morning, on the advice of several friends, I went outside with this:

The ground around the tomato plants is now sprinkled with cayenne pepper and two types of fresh hot peppers. Hopefully that will do the trick and keep our furry friends away!

that's a good solution. I'll be anxious to know if it works. Because if it does, I may just put that around the foundation of my house, along with the concrete!

Oh, I hope the squirrels don't see that stuff and think, " Now I can make some rockin' salsa!!" Good luck!
